Laurie David's cook book "Family Dinners" has recipe for DIVORCE BROWNIES

We didn’t get a copy of this book from her publicist or anything, but I saw Ms. David on The View (Remember she was rumored to have had an affair with Al Gore this summer? She denies the rumours, btw) and she was talking about a recipe for “Divorce Brownies” in her new cookbook called Family Dinners ¬†and, of course, my ears perked up as soon as I hear the word divorce.

By the way, my new children’s book that I published yesterday A New Home for Dennis? Some guy wrote in and said it was “dreadful.” Hahahahahaha ūüôā
Okay. So you should definitely buy Laurie’s book if you are going through divorce but be careful. You don’t want it to go to the booty if you are a regular woman. A woman like me, maybe. It could help you grow a booty so that guys will actually think you’re attractive. But if you already have a booty, maybe the brownies are a bit to risque.
FYI: Not having a booty is possibly worse than having a too big one, btw so it’s not like I’m making fun of women with ample booties. I should know. As a black woman, I can’t tell you the number of black men who have spit at me on the streets and made fun of my freakishly flat “unblack” booty (that’s exactly why I am holding out¬†for a Russian billionaire!). It’s almost like they see you as deformed, you now?For that matter, even some white men seem to get confused when they find a black woman without a big booty.¬† WHAT IS THAT ABOUT??? You know. I happen to¬†love my flat, little booty. I don’t want it any bigger!!! I mean, there are other parts of me that can’t handle divorce brownies, for sure. My pounds (the 30 extra ones I’m carting around)¬†go on in other undesirable places. So if you are like me, you really have to weigh the cost benefit analysis before you bake these darn things. But they do look delicious.
Here’s the recipe:
